    From IGN:
    "The Wii isn't known just yet for its vast array of 3D fighters. And that's not going to change even with the announcement of Soul Calibur Legends for the system.

    First appearing in this week's issue of Famitsu, Legends is described as an action adventure game rather than a fighter. Set in the 16th century, players will be able to meet characters from the Soul Calibur world and experience sword-based combat that makes use of the Wiimote.

    Famitsu was able to unveil nothing more than a logo for the game and did not even provide a release date. We presume this means a release is a ways off."

    Dunno what Ign are on about, theres loads of fighters coming to the Wii. Anyway, this is great news for Nintendo's Wii yet another big name to added. Hears hoping Rockstars Table Tennis game isn't just a rumour too!

    That's kind of...sad. Soul Calibur is the best 3d fighter I know of, but this? I don't know.. Would have been alright if they just did some classic controller stuff.

    God SCII was amazing! I loved Link! I hope they create a new genre - First Person Fighting in an adventure shell [​IMG]

    Noooooooooo! Soul Calibur is one of the few good games Namco havn't yet ruined! But now they're about to! This reeks of Nina Death by Degrees. [​IMG]

    Still it could be good... I'm kinda imagining Soul Calibur meets PSO meets Dynasty Warriors meets Shenmue, but I think thats setting my sights a little too high. I just don't know how well the intricacy of the combat system will translate to a hack and slash adventure with "flailing arm" Wii remote controls. [​IMG]

    Care to elaborate? I don't think there are any fighters of the one on one variety in development for the wii. Only two I know of are Naruto and Bleach, other than those is there anything?

    FUCK yeah! I NEED a Soul Calibur game. I could only play it at other places because I never got a console until now... Well, I guess I could get the Gamecube version but I like the idea of tacked on motion controls. [​IMG]

    This was actually stated by IGN's Matt a few days ago unofficially on the Wii-kend review.

    It shouldn't be too bad though, We have the gamecube version for fighting and this version for adventure.. it might turn out ok..

    I'm sure namco said that Soul Calibur 4 would be a multi platform game, including the Wii - s maybe this game is in addition to Soul Calibur 4

    I hope so, the GC version of SCII was the most successful, and we all know what happened with SC III.

    Soul Calibur 3 was a much smoother and balanced fighter in my opinion. People are just gay for link that they're willing to overlook better gameplay.

    Also, this kind of reminds me of Eirghiest (spelling) and Tobal No. 1 in that it's an adventure game made out of fighting game.

    i just loved Tobal No.1 [​IMG]

    the adventure part of it wasnt that bad as it goes.. i welcome something fresh and new to the soul calibur series, even if its not going to be a dedicated fighter... i didnt get the wii for fighting games mostly anyway, althouhg i am a big fighting game fan but i think the other consoles are gonna pretty much get that genre nailed down what with their DOA's and VF's.

    i rememeber HATING 3d fighters until soul calubir on DC then soul calibur 2 on GC. so long as SC4 is headed for wii eventually, i can live with an adventure/weapons game

    and what ever happened to death by degrees?
